Forum: sports Subject: Pathe News short/Clem McCarthy/Running Wild

I have two 1930s Pathe News shorts that I am having trouble determining the exact football games that are shown on the two films. The first is entitled "Running Wild" and shows Clem McCarthy as the narrator even though the film is silent. One of the games shown is from Movietone and the others appear to be Pathe News. The rooster is shown at the end of the film and a pair of roosters are shown at the beginning. The other short is entitled "Gridiron's Greatest Surprises" and includes three games with the sites of the games noted, but nothing else. If someone has some knowledge of these films, please respond.
